Samsung Copying Apple Is Turning Into A Joke
No doubt everyone in the mobile space knows that Apple is in a bitter battle with Samsung over copying the look and feel of the iPhone and Apple iPad, and Apple is attempting to get Samsung gear banned across the globe, but in reality the people who actually purchase those devices don’t really care whether one device look like another.
The legal battle between Apple and Samsung is heating up as both Verizon and T-Mobile have now come down on Samsung’s side, and today we have an image from the guys over at Reddit that shows the similarities between Samsung and Apple gear.
However I do have to say this all seems to be turning into somewhat of a joke, when people pick up on such things as a phone power adapter looking the same which seems somewhat petty to me to say the least as a cube is a cube, and Apple does own the right to that shape as far a I am aware.
Then there’s the packaging of the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPad, both look similar yes, but the big difference is the Samsung packaging say “Samsung Galaxy Tab” right on the front of the box, so there isn’t really any mistaking the devices, so what’s the big deal?
The images goes as far as to show what’s seen once you open the packaging, and yes both tablets look similar laying flat inside the box, what do they expect, Samsung to package their Galaxy Tab on its side?
There’s also a comparison between cable connectors, but against although the shapes are similar there are is a difference as far as I can see as the Samsung name is on one of them so obviously an iOS user wouldn’t pick up the Samsung cable.
Then there’s the voice recording app, big deal, so what, the microphones look different, so what’s the problem, most microphones look the same anyway, so get over it.
Of course the first image is of a Samsung store with Apple icons on the wall? Hello isn’t Samsung supplier of Apple components, so again what’s the big deal, who cares if Samsung has a couple of Apple icons plastered on a shop wall anyway?
In my humble opinion, the differences are there if you want to see them, the biggest difference being the name on the packaging when it comes to people purchasing their chose device, you are not going to get someone walking into a store for an iPhone or iPad and mistakenly come out with a Samsung Galaxy S II or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or visa versa, in case you didn’t know, the public have a brain and know what devise they want.
